Talk Of The Townhalls: ‘Impeach Obama’ (Video)

Republicans as mainstream as Charles Krauthammer and George Will have lamented the abuse of power and utter lawlessness of this administration. Tea party conservatives have been appalled at what they’ve been seeing from this corrupt administration since the beginning. But it’s not just them, anymore. A sense that the Regime’s lawlessness is destroying the Republic has become an overriding concern for many Republicans – and perhaps a few Democrats, too.

The I-word is coming out from the fringes (and the highway overpasses) and to Republican town halls.

ABC News is picking up on the impeachment chatter at town hall meetings this month that have mostly focused on repealing Obamacare, immigration reform,  and the War on Terror, but one “unexpected”  topic found its way into the conversation: the impeachment of Obama.

At least two members of Congress – one from Texas and the other from Michigan – have openly discussed the unlikely possibility of booting the president from office.

Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich., Monday said it would be a “dream come true” to write a bill to impeach President Obama after constituents asked what he is doing to stop the president from “doing everything that he’s doing against [the] Constitution.”

“If I could write that bill and submit it, it would be a dream come true,” Bentivolio said at the  Birmingham Bloomfield Republican Club Meeting. “I feel your pain. I stood twelve feet away from [the president] and listened to him. I couldn’t stand being there, but because he is president I have to respect the office. That’s my job, as a congressman. I respect the office.”

Bentivolio noted that he has already asked various lawyers and scholars to advise him on how to impeach the president of the United States.

Earlier this month, Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, told town hall attendees in Luling, Texas, that the House of Representatives would be in favor of impeaching President Obama, but that proceedings would most likely fail in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

“If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it,” he said to constituents. “But it would go to the Senate, and he wouldn’t get convicted.”

Despite an inability to articulate what makes the president impeachable, Farenthold went on to argue that the country would be “damaged” if it had to endure another failed impeachment, like that of the Clinton presidency.

In both cases, constituents brought up the possibility of impeachment to their congressional representatives.

The subject also raised its head at an event at a local Civic Center with Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK), Wednesday. Coburn warned that Obama was veering “perilously close” to the standards of conduct necessary to be impeached.

In a video uncovered by BuzzFeed, Coburn warned that the Congress may have to act if Obama does not alter course in the coming months.

What you have to do is you have to establish the criteria that would qualify for proceedings against the president and that’s called impeachment,” Coburn said in response to a question. “That’s not something you take lightly and you have to use a historical precedent of what that means.I think there’s some intended violation of the law in this administration, but I also think there’s a ton of incompetence of people who are making decisions,” Coburn continued.

“I don’t have the legal background to know if that rises to high crimes and misdemeanor but I think they’re getting perilously close,” Coburn added.


People are starting to talk about it. I think we’ll be hearing more such talk in the coming days.

And as I noted at the Conversation, earlier today – why the hell hasn’t the most corrupt Atty General in American history been impeached, yet? I want them both OUT!

Oberlin College Hate Crime Hoaxer Was An OFA Organizer

Dylan Bleier: Obama Fan, Hate Crime Hoaxer and “atheist/pacifist/environmentalist/libertarian socialist/consequentialist”

Early last March, Oberlin College, a progressive school in Ohio with a history of hate crime hoaxescanceled all classes for a day as it scrambled to deal with a number of alleged hate-related incidents that had been reported on the campus.  Students and faculty were filled with dread as some racist, bigoted (perhaps even Republican!) hater(s) besieged the campus with shocking, anti-Semitic, racist fliers.

Students banded together “in solidarity” to fight the hatred in their midst!

You may remember the hysteria culminated in a report of a person wearing a KKK hood and robe  near the Afrikan Heritage House, as reported by Oberlin’s president Marvin Krislov in a letter also signed by three deans. The “KKK” hood-wearing menace turned out to be  a student walking around the area in a blanket.

The Oberlin Police Department identified liberal Obama supporter and OFA organizer, Dylan Bleier and his partner, Matt Alden, as the two perps responsible for the month-long torrent of racist, anti-Semitic and anti-gay messages at the small, private campus.

The Daily Caller reported:

A slew of reports had come in on February 9.  One student reported an anti-Semitic flier a campus building. A swastika showed up drawn on a glass door at another building.

Over the next two days, students reported seeing fliers with swastikas and demeaning comments about Martin Luther King, Jr.

On February 13, a student reported to campus officials that a racist flier had appeared on her door. The flier made a derogatory reference to Black History Month and — in all capital letters — the sexual assault of “A WHITE WOMAN!”

The unidentified student said she believed that Bleier and Alden were “responsible for this flyer being posted on her door.”

On February 15, a large handmade poster of a Nazi flag with a swastika was discovered taped inside the windows of the second floor of the Science Hall. Bleier was later found to have after-hours access to the Science Center.

The police report shows that school officials questioned Bleier and Alden. The report says that the two students admitted to leaving at least some of the markings, literature, and other paraphernalia across campus as a “joke” or a “troll.”

On February 27, Oberlin security officers finally caught Bleier and Alden — apparently red-handed — in the process of their hateful message circulation. At the time, according to the report, one of the students had discarded a piece of paper reading: “Islam. It kills.”

Bleier attempted to explain away the incriminating evidence, according to the police report.

“I’m doing it as a joke to see the college overreact to it as they have with the other racial postings that have been posted on campus,” he told campus cops.

At one point, police records say, Bleier wrote a statement in Burton’s office claiming responsibility for the flier left on the door of a female student February 5. He also owned up to responsibility for some cards containing the word “niggermania.”

“I printed out a page of racist ‘niggermania’ cards to show to friends as a joke/for the shock value,” he allegedly wrote, adding that he had somehow accidently left them sitting in a lounge on campus.

“Matt Alden and I made a giant Nazi flag as a joke to troll people and put it up in the science center,” Bleier also confessed, the police report says.

He claimed to have had nothing to do with any of the other swastikas strewn around campus, but then allegedly wrote, “I posted Krislov’s head photoshopped onto Hitler’s body LoL.”

It’s funny how lefties always claim “it was just a joke!” whenever they’re caught red-handed faking something.

The truth is, left wing hoaxers do it for political gain, knowing that the Right will be accused of fomenting hatred and violence through the bigoted speech. It’s nothing new, Michelle Malkin has been tracking the phenomena for many years.

As for Dylan’s left wing creds, the Daily Caller reported that Dylan Bleier hosted a voter registration drive in a Walmart parking lot sponsored by Organizing for Action, the community organizing project that advances the agenda of Obama.

On his now-defunct LinkedIn page, Bleier noted that he was the founder and president of the Ithaca High School for Obama club. He also identified himself as a member of the Oberlin College Democrats.

Bleier also listed his participation in a group called Ithaca White Allies Against Structural Racism. He joined the group in May of this year, he reported. He said the group’s goal is to “eradicate structural racism in Tompkins County [NY], via forums discussing racism.”

On his Twitter account, which he protected after TheDCNF reached him on Tuesday, Bleier hailed Obama’s comments on George Zimmerman, tweeting: “Zimmerman is just the tip of the iceberg, a single highly visible symptom of the racist system that is ‘succeeding’ in the US.”

Bleier also describes himself on Twitter as an “atheist/pacifist/environmentalist/libertarian socialist/consequentialist.”

It’s a good thing he’s a consequentialist. Because when the day comes that he can’t get a decent job with a reputable company because of his background perpetrating fraud, he’ll understand that that is the logical consequence of his actions.
